The Glanvilles Polyclinic, whose construction was funded by the government of the People’s Republic of China, was opened on 31st January this year.
However, challenges providing constant water supply to the health facility forced a period of closure to rectify the issue.
A precise date for the reopening was not disclosed, but it will likely occur in early December.
The Antigua Barbuda Labour Party government in the past years has commissioned several of these facilities, which are equipped to provide routine medical services as well as preventative and urgent care.
The aim is to bring advanced healthcare services into communities across the country and lessen the burden on the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre.
The good news of the reopening of the Glanvilles medical centre was doubled with the announcement on Wednesday that the Villa Polyclinic will soon provide paediatric care and electrocardiogram or EKG services.
